Flooding in Luzon, Philippines

2011 Photos of Housing Areas Near Santa Rosa, Laguna
We were in this area last year in February working with Light of the World Mission Philippines on the first leg of our mission trip to Luzon, Philippines.
This is the backside of one of the many housing settlements.

This is their church which you will see was flooded with waist high water.

That’s me. Fortunately, not standing in flood waters.

It rained and flooded this same area we were in last year.

This is Pastor Marvin showing how high the water came in the church.

It is amazing how resilient the Filipino people are who live through the regular monsoon floods by helping each other with food, clothing, man power for the massive clean up, and moral support.

  1. It saddens me every time we experience something like this at home. I live in the south though — Mindanao. Glad to know that you’ve been to Philippines! 🙂
